Albeit slightly biased - anywhere in Ireland that is dog friendly automatically gets four stars. The fifth star is for the outstanding selection of food, the soup and home made bread was delightful as was the ham and cheese toastie. Super friendly staff and even...at busy times plenty of room to sit. Loved it!More

Poppies seemed popular when we arrived, plenty of people around and both indoor and outdoor seating. The food looked inviting and the cakes and coffee were very good indeed. This was our third visit to Poppies and it’s very consistent. My only negative comment is...that the staff always seem grumpy, not rude or anything like that, just in bad form and it always feels like that. I assume it’s because they are always quite busy and they do appear to work very hard but a smile and a welcome doesn’t cost anything.More

We had breakfast here for our two day stay in Enniskerry. The coffee is lovely and the breakfast rolls, pancakes and pastries are delicious. The staff are so polite and helpful. A must place to stop off when u are in Enniskerry.

Poppy's is perfectly perfect we had 2cokes and I had the carnation chicken roll and my partner had the cheese and ham roll I never had a carnation roll like it they toasted it in the oven every bite was delicious it was so tasty...my partner said his roll was gorgeous. I then had a Portuguese custard tart and he had the apple pie heated with cream . I paid €20 for all . We had it outside at one of their tables it was an amazing atmosphere because the sets are being built for The new Disney movie Disenchanted .Poppies you run a fab business and your food is also fab .Can't wait to come back to your amazing Cafe .keep doing what your doing Poppies is a credit to you ❤️More

Hi Kergman Firstly I'd like to thank you for letting me know of your experience. I've spoken to our chef, he was worried that filling the sambos and rolls too much might effect the internal core temperature, however from today onwards, we will be doubling...More

We are avid walkers and often stop here for coffees or lunch. Today after our walk we got 2 coffees and 2 cream doughnuts to take out. This was at the ridiculous cost of €13. The cakes were €3.50 each and they weren’t even fresh....Both were were hard and tasted stale. It wasn’t very appealing as they were just put into a paper bag on top of each other. No napkin or separate wrap to keep them apart. Most things in the display were priced from what saw. Very disappointing. I doubt we will be back.More

Coffee here is excellent. Lovely people watching in this quaint little village. Almost too many cyclists around but can’t control that.

We travelled from South Wicklow to have lunch in Poppies, a cafe that we held dear to our hearts. Fond memories of great country cooking and lovely friendly staff. Well, this was a total let down. The food was pre made, the portions outrageously small...and lacking any flavour or quality. We opted for sandwiches, wraps toasted?? and coffees. My wife had to ask twice for her tuna melt to be actually melted. Even then, after the second time of receiving it, it was handed to her cold. This is a case of an establishment living off past glories but we should have guessed, as it was the only eatery in Enniskerry without a queue. A shame, as it was such a great spot.More
